Real Estate Summit an agenda to dispossess JK people of their land rights: NC
Calls it an attempt to obfuscate history, culture, land and democratic rights of people of J&K
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Monday denounced the real estate summit saying the proposed measures will inevitably imperil the rights of locals over their land and natural resources.
Calling the conference as yet another despicable measure to deprive people of Jammu and Kashmir of their rights, party Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said, “Such measures expose the sinister plans which the ruling dispensation is up to in J&K. Sadly, Jammu and Kashmir has the atrocious appellation of being a highly dispossessed region of the country. The priority of the government should have been to give a sense of entitlement to people and not shear them of their exclusive land rights,” adding, “It is yet another deliberate attempt to obfuscate the history, culture, land and democratic rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir for political and ideological agendas.”
Calling the real estate summit a theater of the absurd, Imran said NC would not remain silent to this authoritarian and accelerated transformation of Jammu and Kashmir, which comes straight from RSS’s vision and agenda. It is also a brazen attempt of RSS-BJP to use Jammu and Kashmir for scapegoating widespread economic failures, farmer issues, and raging unemployment across the country,” he added.
Imran accused the ruling dispensation at center for putting J&K up for sale. “The main idea behind these exercises is to textually bury J&K’s particularistic or special identity, which New Delhi has promised to protect at the time of J&K’s accession. They had promised to preserve Kashmir’s identity within what is now popularly called the idea of India. This new move is yet another story in the saga of never ending injustices and of historical injustices with Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
